  1. Hey everyone, I have decided to part with my Bolex h16 Rex 5. It has the 10x viewfinder. The camera is in flawless cosmetic and working condition. I just had it serviced 4 months ago, and it runs like clockwork. It is very clean inside and out. Unfortunately the camera does not come with any lenses. I am also throwing in a couple of extras, please what’s included see below: -Bolex H16 rex 5 camera body -Extra rubber eye cup -Extra pressure plate (just in case you ever lose the one in the camera!) -Bolex surefire hand grip with trigger cable -filters, extra written gel filters -rewind key -a little reflective light meter that fits in cold shoe. I am asking for $2,100 + shipping and insurance. I am also willing to do local pickup if you are in New Jersey. If interested, DM me for any photos and more details.

  3. Hello, I recently bought a stuck non-reflex Bolex (1949) for pretty cheap. I took it apart, oiled it, and now it runs great. One small thing I'm unsure of is the pressure plate. You can see in the image that the plate is not perfectly aligned with the film gate, so there's a sliver of the shiny rail that's showing through the gate. I was wondering if this was normal, and if not, is it a problem? I haven't shot motion picture film before, so I'm not sure how opaque the film backing is, and whether or not it would prevent light from passing through the film and reflecting off the pressure plate. Thanks, Joe

  10. Hi all, I have recently bought a Bolex H16 EBM. I have charged the battery for 15 hours and when I place it on the camera the red warning sign turns on and stays on (motor not working) I have searched it up and I know these old batteries (12V) can be defected. I tried again this evening and placed it on the camera, but then the light started to flicker and turned off and stayed off. The motor was not running at that time either. I’m scared the electronics inside the camera is defected? If so what can I do to make the motor work? I also know that the batteries to the camera may giving too less power, and that’s the reason why the motor won’t run. Would appreciate any help on this, since I’m all new to this camera.
  11. Hi all, I just bought a Bolex H16 Reflex camera and noticed right away that the diopter adjustment ring is broken. There's a crack all the way through it, which means that the ring won't remain where I want it to be. Perhaps I can glue it together, but I doubt that would last very long. Hence I'm wondering if any of you know where I could buy a spare ring. Or if there are other Bolex cameras with the exact same ring that I could buy for a cheaper price without too much trouble? Any recommendations on how to fix this? Thanks!

  13. So I've been trying to figure out if it's possible to add a video tap to a Bolex, and I recently came across this image showing a Bolex on a Steadicam with a LCD incorporated. I was wondering if anyone could give an explanation or idea as to how they managed to do this. My theory is, they took a small external camera and positioned it in the viewfinder, then outsourced it to the LCD so they could get a pretty accurate idea of exactly what they were filming. I'm not sure if they struggled with any latency problems, but if this was the case that would be pretty clever. Here is the setup:

  18. Hi cinema lovers, I've been a lurker on these forms for a while now, and I'm not sure if this is the right place, but but this is my first post! I'm a 3rd year film student at Falmouth University (UK) and I'm directing a short film called Philistine. I'm here to both share with you my kickstarter and receive any valuable information/tips on shooting with film (it's my first time). We'll be shooting on a Bolex H16, using Kodak 16mm Double X Black & White Negative (7222). It's Tungsten 200 and Daylight 250. SYNOPSIS: Cinema projectionist Marcelle works for an independent, arthouse, and old-school cinema. Though, the theatre is forced to close and he’s made redundant; the digital age has no use for disciples of the past. Down on his luck, his fate is bettered after an encounter with a young woman, Anna. His optimism is short-lived, though, and he becomes the victim of a different kind... On the surface Philistine is about a cinema projectionist who loses his job, but deeper down it's a film about film, cinema history, and a respect for the past. My viewpoint is that we, the younger generations, are becoming detached from the history of cinema - which I feel is a bad thing. Although the topic is dramatic, and when written "loses his job" sounds like a cliche student drama, the narrative and stylistic approach is absurd, abstract, playful, comical and shocking. As I'm posting on a cinematography forum comprised of cinema lovers, I assume it may mean something to you when I say that both the writing and directing of Philistine have taken heavy inspiration from the work of the French New Wave. For those that aren't familiar, their stance was particularly anti-Hollywood, and so they would make their films in the most rogue fashion possible; both in terms of narrative and technical approach. This is something I too believe in. I also feel as if many student films are the same (partly down to the use of the same cameras and partly down to their pursuit of replicating formulaic narrative and stylistic hollywood standards) and so with this film, and anything I create in general, I tried to stray as far from the 'norm' as possible. I hope that people see that in the kickstarter. 16MM FILM: The choice to shoot on 16mm was there from (almost) the very beginning. Following from the birth of the concept - old-school celluloid cinema projectionist being ousted by the digital - I knew that it would be hypocritical of me not to shoot on film. It's a film about film and the impact that the easily accessible digital has on it. And so, not only does film LOOK beautiful, it serves the story. I flirted with the thought for a while until I saw a 16mm film that my tutor had made and was promoting. After research I gathered some figures to see if this dream was actually possible; and it is, though I can't do it on my own. What's more, after seeing the 'Kodak deal' go down in February of this year ("Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony, NBC Universal and Warner Bros all pledge to continue buying filmstock from the company, even as the majority of directors and cinemas choose to go digital"), I feel now more than ever it is important that we, the younger generations, keep film alive. BUDGET: The proposed budget for the kickstarter is £2000. Film costs (stock, camera, development) comes to just over half of that at £1100. Now, film in the digital age is of course an aesthetic choice, and we could easily just use a RED digital camera, but I hope those of you reading do see the reason for and passion behind the use of film for Philistine. The camera rental company and developing lab are extremely enthusiastic about my choice to shoot on film and are really helpful in answering questions and teaching us and taking us through the process. If any of you like the sound of my film and could spare some change towards it we'd be forever grateful; we have a lot of money to make in short amount of time and so every little helps! All feedback is welcome and thanks for your time!
